      stated; plain in language; open to the understanding;
      clear; not obscure or ambiguous; express; unequivocal; as,
      an explicit declaration. Opposite of implicit.
      [1913 Webster]

            The language of the charter was too explicit to
            admit of a doubt.                     --Bancroft.
      [1913 Webster]

   2. Having no disguised meaning or reservation; unreserved;
      outspoken; -- applied to persons; as, he was earnest and
      explicit in his statement.
      [1913 Webster]

   Explicit function. (Math.) See under Function.

   Syn: Express; clear; plain; open; unreserved; unambiguous.

   Usage: Explicit, Express. Explicit denotes a setting
          forth in the plainest language, so that the meaning
          can not be misunderstood; as, an explicit promise.
          Express is stronger than explicit: it adds force to
          clearness. An express promise or engagement is not
          only unambiguous, but stands out in bold relief, with
          the most binding hold on the conscience. An explicit
          statement; a clear and explicit notion; explicit
          direction; no words can be more explicit. An explicit
          command; an express prohibition. "An express
          declaration goes forcibly and directly to the point.
          An explicit declaration leaves nothing ambiguous."
          --C. J. Smith.
          [1913 Webster]
